Workshop: Fostering Historical Research in CSCW&HCI

Austin. November 9-13, 2019

This day-long workshop aims to support and grow the community of CSCW and HCI scholars that investigate the past to inform the design, critique and conceptualization of technology. At this workshop, we will learn from examples of historically-based CSCW and HCI work, explore issues in historical method that come up in such work, share methods and techniques, provide feedback and support to ongoing investigations; and define a shared agenda for future research on this topic. The workshop will also highlight research and methods that focus on non-Western contexts and that give voice to historically marginalized groups. Based on the workshop, we will develop a white paper and a website that will collect resources to support CSCW based historical investigations. Continue reading

Workshop: Populism, Law and Technology

Budapest. September 16, 2019

The Center for Ethics and Law in Biomedicine at CEU is organizing a small, 1-day workshop on the topic of Populism, Law and Technology.

The workshop will take place on the 16th of September 2019 at Central European University in Budapest, Hungary.

Here’s a brief blurb about the event’s topic:

Hyper-targeted misinformation, election manipulation and pervasive surveillance are just some of the new tools afforded to overt and covert political actors by powerful technological advances. In the wake of scandals related to the potential of such methods to undermine trust, create societal polarisation and challenge democratic processes, there is an urgent need to align the development and application of these technologies with fundamental rights and norms. We ask: In what ways do innovations in areas like artificial intelligence and machine learning support populist tendencies, and what protective mechanisms are available to subvert such developments?

General information

TEI2020 invites proposals for half or one-day studios and workshops (onwards S/W). S/W will be held on Sunday, 9th of February, 2020 in Sydney, Australia.

Even though TEI2020 invites us to reflect on the topic of Future Bodies, Future Technologies, it is also open to other perspectives within the general theme of tangible, embedded and embodied interaction. A studio is a hands-on experience that exposes participants to something novel, such as a design technique, an unexpected combination of people, technologies and materials, an approach to the design process, et cetera. A workshop, on the other hand, connects researchers around the discussion on a scholarly topic of relevance for the TEI2020 community, towards the generation of academic knowledge, within the realm of (design) research and its role in society. Organisers should specify if they wish to apply some selection criteria for participants to join their proposed Workshop (such as position papers), or if these are open for all that might be interested. Please note that such position papers do not go in the conference proceedings. Continue reading
